Breaking: Ben Scrivens signs in KHL – Sources

Free agent goalie Ben Scrivens won’t play in North America this upcoming season.

The 29-year-old goalie has agreed to a deal to play in the KHL. As multiple sources indicated early on Thursday morning, he has been signed to a one-year deal with Dinamo Minsk.

After an average season, he will be joining one of the league’s best teams in Belarus, where he will be the clear starter leaving Kevin Lalande and Dmitri Milchakov behind him.

Scrivens spent this past season hopping between NHL and AHL, appearing  on the ice for three different teams, Bakersfield Condors, Montreal Canadiens, and St. John’s Ice Caps.
